From New York City to Pittsburgh,

Across NJ & Pennsylvania daily,

To deliver coke, meth & pot,

Never got caught, a crazy life then,

Slept most nights on an old beat up cot…


Drove the car above,

With her I was verily in love,

She did fit me like the proverbial glove,

Till one day in the snow I did hit a tree,

Then I had to, fully loaded, over a cliff her shove…


She was dark blue & black,

No cop was able to catch her, enough go they did lack,

A GT 500 K/R model with twin fours,

Thankfully premium was really then premium,

None of this unleaded crap we use now,

Wish then I did that I could run her,

From the Atlantic to the Pacific shores…

PS: Old Brother Edvard recently told me that you've also been a Stool Pigeon! (And I thought I knew my brothers pretty well.)
